The original stories of the seven voyages of Sinbad are centurys old traditional Arabian stories. The stories can be found in many public domain translations and retellings of the original Arabian stories here.

The only public domain films are these cartoons:

Sinbad the Sailor (UB Iwerks 1935)

AND

Popeye meets Sinbad the Sailor (Fleischer, 1936)

That you know about.

You forgot the Mel-O-Toons rendition of Sinbad as well as Big Bad Sinbad (1952) and I'm sure there's many more. Though I doubt the Popeye cartoons would actually be considered related to the Sinbad character other than in name.

Firstly, Mel-O-Toons is a TV show not a film. Secondly, Big Bad Sinbad was a later re-edited (clip-show or "cheater" style) episode of Popeye made from "Popeye Meets Sinbad the Sailor", so mentioning it was somewhat superfluous.
